25. Revelations (pt 4)


"Are you okay now?” I asked.

“Yes. I’m sorry I scared you. I didn’t want you to see that.”

"That’s okay, we all have our crazy sides. My head turns 360° when I get pissed off and Istart foaming green vomit...not a pretty sight.” I joked, winking at him. 

He laughed, and his laughter floated through me. I walked to him, and he gathered me into his arms for a hug. I lifted my head to see him, his face had color to it now. His eyes were a warm golden color, they sparkled, I swooned. He truly was beautiful. Christian led me down the hallway back to his room. He lifted me onto his bed easily, then hopped on it himself. I waited for him to speak. 
“I haven’t lost control like that in a long time. I don’t want you to think this type of thing happens all the time.”

“I know. I didn’t want you hurt yourself, I’m glad you came back to me.” I whispered. He reached over the bed, taking my hand into his. 

“I will always come back to you, no matter what.” He promised.

"I know you will.” I squeezed his hand. "Emilia said something about a blood lust whore...what is that?” Christian tensed and exhaled loudly. Even though I knew he didn’t even need to breathe, it was an act of habit on his part.

“There are vampires out there who aren’t like my family. These vampires do hunt and kill humans. There are humans who are aware about vampires. These humans are walking blood donations to their vampire master, the humans are used for sex, power, and blood. You see, a vampire’s bite isn’t painful there are endorphins in it, along with venom. Think of a venomous snake, which has the power to bite with its venom or bite without it. That’s how a vampire works, if we want to kill or feed we use the endorphins to keep our victims under control. Or if we want to turn a human we use the venom, which produces the pain. It’s a very complicated process and relationship. Some of these vampires use their Compelling powers on the humans to make them stay, and sometimes the humans become addicted to the endorphins they never realize they are in danger. It’s sick stuff. This is where the term ’blood lust whore’ comes from basically, a man or woman is so addicted to the endorphins that they keep on going back. If the vampire cuts them off, they can grow desperate, they will even try to expose the vampire. At that time they are usually murdered by the vampires or even sold to another master. Ninety-eight percent of the time the human is killed.” 

“And the other two percent of the time?” 

“The human becomes a vampire, if that vampire chooses to do so. That master vampire will control the newly created vampire to do its bidding. It's basically a life of servitude until the baby vampire can buy their freedom.” Christian told me.

"You're right that is some sick and complicated stuff. These other vampires don't sound civilized at all." 

"They're not, my family and I avoid them at all costs." I nodded, fully understanding the Watson's motivations to stay away from those vampires. 

“Where exactly are your fangs located? I happen to notice yours sticking out back in there.” I ventured. 

Christian smirked, "We can pop our fangs out at any time. They are pushed up against the hard palate of our mouth and when we‘re on the hunt they unhinge basically and come on down.” 

“Oh, like a snake.” I said, yawning unexpectedly. 

Christian raised an eyebrow and ignored my observation. 
“Time for bed. What time would you like to go back home?” He asked, changing the subject.

“It doesn’t matter to me, I wish I didn’t have to leave.” I told him.

He left me on the bed sitting, “Me either, be right back, you need pajamas.” 
He walked out the room, while I thought about everything he told me. The business of blood lust whoring sounded sick to me. I couldn’t imagine who would ever want to live a life like that. It disturbed me, everything about these past hours bothered me. I never thought in a million years I’d find myself with the sexiest vampire in the whole world who had a sister who hated me, or survive a creature who wanted to kill me. Never did I imagine that I’d find a person who accepted me, flaws and all like Christian did. I loved the fact that I could tell him anything and didn’t feel pressured or judged, he truly understood me and my teenage angst. Fatigue overcame me, this whole day made me tired. I wouldn’t have done anything different though, I was glad everything happened because me and Christian were together. 

However, I didn’t want to come between Christian and his family. Emilia had been right about something tonight, both of us would have to be careful with our relationship. Or else everything would be disastrous. Christian returned with pajamas then stepped back out of the room while I changed. I brushed my teeth, then climbed back into bed with Christian. 

“Are you going to sleep with me tonight?” I asked him. 

“Depends on your definition of sleeping…if you mean hold you in my arms until you fall asleep then yes. If you mean have anything else then no.” He joked. 

My mouth gaped open. I laughed. “That did sound dirty…well while I wasn’t thinking dirty, I don’t want you to leave.” 

“I will be here. Go to sleep.” He laid down, pulling me onto his chest. I snuggled against him. I wrapped my arm around his waist this time pulling him close to me. He kissed the top of my forehead. I closed my eyes breathing in his scent, “Goodnight. I love you.”

“I love you too. Goodnight.”
